This year, I didn’t end up grilling hot dogs for the fourth of July and opted for a simple salad and grilled corn (vacation recovery fare). If I had had a Barking Hot Dog Cooker, I might have reconsidered. It’s not that I don’t love my grill, but the cuteness of this little gadget is hard to resist.
The cooker steams up to six hot dogs at a time inside its dog-shaped casing. It closes tightly while cooking, making it safe and easy to keep on the table, and lets out a barking noise when the dogs are ready.
